Animal Tales from Boulderwood Farm - the Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side. Isn't it?
When the whinnying and the mooing sounded like it was coming from my back door....well, it's because it was....
The entire herd - all three horses and all three cows were acting out the great escape the other night and partied like it was 1999. Julia was eating apples right off the apple tree; Mr Johnson stuck his head over the fence of my veggie garden and ate some broccoli; and the horses, horsed around all night - I don't even want to tell you where I found hoof prints.
I guess it's something in the cool, fall-like evening air...or... perhaps the grass really is greener on our side of the fence!

Burtee and Matt surveying their kingdom!!
I love shots from behind and to me there's nothing better than seeing the bond between a boy and his dog.

Tales from Boulderwood Farm and in this case, Ice Glen Road!!
Jim and I get really angry when people run over turtles on our road. It's a country road, not a super highway and believe it or not there are a lot of Morons (sorry for the strong sentiment) that drive 50 mph down our street and squish these beautiful creatures. We take great pleasure rescuing these painted (and even snapping) turtles when we see one on the road. We drove this beauty all the way to the swamp to insure his/her survival!! Viva la turtle!!

Animal Tales from Boulderwood Farm
The love affair of Burt and Uni, guinea fowl and border collie, BFF!!
They go everywhere together, nose to butt. An unlikely pair for sure! Who do you think is fiercer? Burt or Uni. Clue - one of them had Jim's friend hopping all over the driveway and chased him into the house....

Animal Tales from Boulderwood Farm.
Buddy, our bantam rooster gives me the "side-eye" glare as if saying, "whatcha lookin' at?"
He's quite tame for a rooster. He does, however, suffer from the Napolean syndrome as he plays tough guy with our big white rooster, Whitey. Not sure why Whitey allows Buddy to bully him. I guess I'll never know!!

The Bathing Beauties of Boulderwood.....who knew cows love to wade?? Julia, Delilah and Mr. Johnson (who I guess is a bathing beast) ignore the fence and just step right in the "pool."
The Beauties From Afar
As I got closer, they turned...
...and jumped out of the "pool" as if I were the pond warden....
"RUN....she caught us in the act!!"
I love our animals.
